    Default USA iphone 3g on other official carriers?

    i read from a user in this forum that even if the iphone 3g is locked it can be used on other official carriers in other countries because the authorization is frimware based correct? i live in brazil so since VIVO and CLARO are offical carriers here should it work if I upgrade to 2.0.1 ?? if it doesnt can I downgrade the 3g iphoen to 2.0??

    thanks all

    This is similar to all of the people selling AT&T phones as "unlocked" on Ebay when they really aren't.

    i've been looking on ebay and I see most are claiming to sell unlocked and then I read the fine print: "when the software is available" etc. is it possible to buy an unlocked iphone 3g in the states?

    Absolutely not ! I've tried myself on a phone's friend. I used his USA AT&T phone and tried with another official carrier's SIM .............. and I got a SIM Failure error.

    As far as I know the only two places where you can buy factory unlocked 3G iPhones without any contract are Belgium and Italy.
    The unlocked Hong Kong 3G iPhones can be used with any carrier but you have to sign a 2 year contract to get them.
